Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50145988
  • Date: 18 December 2007
  • Public Authority: Housing Corporation
  • Summary: The complainant requested information from the Housing Corporation, principally letters from a named firm of solicitors acting for a housing association, which the Housing Corporation refused to disclose, citing the section 41 exemption under the Act. The complainant had delayed for almost a year before putting his complaint to the Commissioner. The Commissioner decided that, while there had been delay, in the circumstances of the case the interests of justice were best served by his considering the complaint about information in the letters to the Corporation from the housing association’s solicitors. Having done so, he decided that the Housing Corporation had acted correctly in withholding the information.
